Because every dog wants to be a puppy again
What is Laser Therapy?
Low level laser therapy (LLLT) can effectively block pain message signals so reducing pain, improve healing time, increase circulation and decrease swelling.
LLLT stimulates the body’s cellular response to damage. In soft tissue injures, it increases the production of cells such as macrophages, fibroblasts and mast cells which then accelerates tissue repair and improves chronic conditions.
There are many conditions that laser therapy can be used to alleviate. It has anti-inflammatory, pain relieving and increased healing properties. It is non-invasive and drug free and is easily tolerated by patients.
The results are reducing inflammation in joints, relief of pain, swelling and stiffness and increased mobility.
Therapeutic lasers can be used on their own, in conjunction with conventional medicine, when conventional methods have drawn a blank or where the use of drugs present a problem.
Conditions that benefit from Laser Therapy
Reduces pain and increases mobility in arthritic dogs and dogs that suffer from hip or elbow dysplasia, increases healing time in soft tissue injuries, such as sprains and strains.
Course of Treatment
Treatments vary case to case but normally, cases are seen twice a week for the first 2 weeks, then weekly for 2 weeks, then fortnightly for 2 weeks, then a maintenance monthly visit.
Veterinary referral is necessary. The treatment will be carried out in the comfort of your own home, though if your pet is having therapy at Roundstone Hydrotherapy Centre in Angmering, then I can carry out the treatment there, at the end of their session, if that is convenient for you.
All appointments are from £30.
“I believe that Ali and her laser treatment have made a significant contribution to my springer spaniel Peg finding her zoom and zest for life again. After a number of months where her mobility and capacity for enjoying her walks was severely impacted and the only solution seemed to be medication and painkillers.
Ali was gentle, encouraging and kind to Peg and was able to get her to settle and engage for the around half an hour of each treatment session. Peg’s capacity to again enjoy her walks and move with ease and once more, be the energetic and vibrant dog of the year before was for me, the best possible outcome of her treatment.
She has regained movement and activity that I had felt might be lost and many friends comment on the amazing change in her and her ability to walk and enjoy life again. Peg’s medication has reduced drastically and she is now having monthly maintenance sessions with Ali
Ali’s breath of experience as a vet nurse and her huge knowledge inspires confidence and she is a fountain of other dog related advice. I know I really benefit from our chats whilst she treats Peg – Ali thank you so much.” Jayne.
“Ali came into ours and Gracie’s lives at exactly the right time.
Gracie had just had surgery on her hip and although recovering, she needed a bit of extra help. Ali was that – Gracie loved her from day one as we did.
Ali is the most caring person, gentle and full of information that has always been gratefully received.
We had a short break as the other hip was operated on, and then Ai was back with us. I really don’t know who was most excited, me or Gracie!
Gracie is now well on the road to recovery and Ali has played a huge part of that!
Absolutely recommend Ali!!” Sue
